MILFORD, CT—With new genetic proof tying Covid-19 to animals offered at a moist market in Wuhan, China, Subway CEO John Chidsey confirmed Friday that he had simply assumed this complete time that the virus originated with the restaurant chain’s Chilly Lower Combo. “I wasn’t going to say something, however I used to be 99% positive Covid-19 made the leap to people from considered one of our traditional Chilly Lower Combo sandwiches,” stated Chidsey, including that it wouldn’t have been the primary time a world pandemic unfold from one of many franchise’s menu choices, nor wouldn’t it be the final. “Between the three sorts of lukewarm, sweaty chilly cuts; the translucent, decomposing greens; and the majority, room-temperature mayonnaise we pile on that factor, I wouldn’t be stunned if it took out 3 million individuals in at some point, not to mention over the course of a number of years. Actually, I’m nonetheless not satisfied it didn’t—that’s not too far off our annual variety of rancid ham-related deaths. Nothing is cooked inside a Subway, and we’re nonetheless not allowed to categorise our bread as meals, so that you do the maths. Most of this meat is simply sitting outdoors the again door in a rubbish bag—we don’t even order it, and once we do order it, it’s bought free from the again of some man’s truck that’s at all times parked within the solar. So I can’t say whether or not or not an contaminated raccoon canine or bat or no matter made it into considered one of our sandwiches or was, God forbid, uncovered to 1, however both method, I thought this complete factor was both our fault or Quiznos’.” At press time, Chidsey had reportedly used the general public exoneration as a chance to relaunch Subway’s discontinued H1N1 Rooster Membership from 2009.
